Football season is over (the Pro Bowl is a crock).
There is still about 10 days before pitchers and catchers report to spring training.
NASCAR gets its preseason engines started later this week.
Hockey players and owners are still telling each other to puck off.
That means I am left to watch basketball highlights on ESPN and its affiliate networks.
Even though I have hated the NBA is seasons past, I have watched more games on tv this season, mostly because there is no hockey. And having watched more games, I found out there are a lot of really crappy teams in the league (the Warriors are included in this group). I still think there are too many selfish players in the NBA, but there are a few players I like.
